While we're on the subject, does anyone have a good recipe for turnips?

Another question:

If I put my cat in a cement mixer, will my 86 Taurus turn into a turnip?

No.

It will turn into a 75 Gremlin. Exploding gas tank at no extra cost.

Detetntion...wasn't that something to do with the Cold War? Or was that Detentetion?

Wait, I remember something about the Detet Offesive in Vietnam. Could it be related?

Damn...looks like this student is joining SDH, but for spelling practice.

But it was only a mechanical failure, not a true mis-spelling...

Does typo = mis-spelling?

Mechanical failure sounds about right. I always maintain that my spelling is wonderful, but my typnign leaves something to be dsesried.

I really am getting worried...I am getting worse and worse. Virtually ever post has something along these lines in it. I see "sheak" for "sneak" right below here...I type "they" for "the" all the time, but that seems a mis-spelling of a different color.

I don't know if age is involved or what, but it is a tad worrisome.

It may just be symptomatic of your mind being focused elsewhere than on the froth and bubble of this little internet hideaway. But I suspect you're something of a perfectionist in all you do and I can see it rankles to let slip-ups escape into the world. I've just been politely admonished by a publishing colleague for not spotting that 'Renaissance' had been spelled with one 's' in a set of proofs I was supposed to have checked. So it isn't just you - but at least here it doesn't matter that much.

Ah, the "joy" of a good set of proofs...something we share across the pond. Just when you think it's over and that you'll never again have to see that document, there it is in all its splendor (or not), and you are forced to, with glazen eye, go over it ONE MORE TIME...argh.

The only joy in Mudville in such times is the fact that you will never again be req'd to do so...and then the big bucks will be rolling in, so that ease's the pain a tad (we can hope, right?).

Hope it goes well with all your proofs past, present and future!

"...mis-spelling of a different color."

What color IS mis-spelling? And why bring race into it?

E gads! And with all my efforts to be color blind I stepped right into it.

Speaking of getting along, I think that tito must be related to Zappa; did you read BD's post a quote? negating every truism in one fell swoop...sounds like somebody we both know.

A year's supply of kudos to whoever can source that one.

"The booklet that came with the original "Manhole" album. On one song Pete Sears is credited as "Seeder Pears". I liked the fun things like that that would go on in the booklets, innersleeves and inserts of the original LP'S. Think of the totally fake lyrics to "Come Again Toucan" in the "Manhole" booklet, perfectly illustrating the point of the song's ACTUAL lyrics that "mistakes are made because words are misunderstood". And Grace's note about the song "Manhole" itself; "We had to put antifreeze in the Steinway or it would have sounded like cuticles." What on Earth??

And then there's the "Amazing Grace" poem about Maurice on the back cover of "Burgers":

"And the Mighty Maurice
He once was lost but now fondue
Was blind but now rantoul". "

Damn it, WT, as if you were in any need of more kudos...

I love the booklets that used to come with the LPs (somehow CD inserts just aren't the same)- like the one with Sunfighter (spellinx by Grace Slict - she can join our club). Always reckoned Silver Spoon as a great track on that album - 'So long all day sucker, your candy has come and gone, and it's left you with you mouth wide open, just humming cannibal songs' - and you realise, sucker that you are, that that's exactly what the Slick Witch has got you doing. Great stuff.

Me too.

Of course, I was clued by your prior praise of them in previous posts to put a point on it with "P's"...

But it came up right away when I googled her and a few keywords...even though they were mis-spelled.

mis-spelling is most asuredly chartruese (which of course, i just may have misspelled)
